gun deaths generally, the first policy i would put into place is already in place in many cities in the united states, and i think should be spread even further. and it often goes under the popular term hotspots policing. policing has been shown to reduce what you referred to earlier as average gun violence if any gun violence could be said to be average. that is to say enhancing police patrols in those neighborhoods or even smaller areas of the city where gun violence is highly concentrated, typically during the night and evening hours, that's been shown to reduce firearm violence and incidentally without spreading it to adjoining areas. the research literature is very clear on that, my own city of st. louis recently implemented such a program and experienced very substantial declines in gun violence where the program was implemented. so policy number one for reducing our largest gun violence problem, which is the problem of typically two young men in a dispute. one or both of whom are arms, one kills or severely injures the other. we do know how to reduce that problem. we're not g
